TA 303 Advanced Ongoing Training

Who is this for?
Psychologists, psychotherapists, counsellors and coaches who have completed a TA 101 and TA 202 course or other advanced TA programmes. People seeking advanced training hours as part of a TA Examination requirement with a TSTA (P).

Monthly on a Monday evening from 6 – 8 pm South African time.

On Zoom conference call.

R350.00  OR  £20.00 (for UK participants).  Participants pay only for the sessions that they attend and attend only the sessions in which they have an interest.  This is payable into my bank account immediately after the session. (details available on registration).

This varies from month to month as it is not a set course.  The material covered consists of TA Journal articles and the integration of other modalities into TA that are of current interest to practitioners. These are sometimes practical and experiential and at other times, philosophical or theoretical and take the form of a discussion group which is very interactive.

This takes place via a WhatsApp group on which the dates of sessions as well as the topics for discussion are placed.  Participants use this to also indicate whether they will attend or not and where they can also have discussion and share material of interest to the group.

Project TA 101 – Personal Tools for Social Transformation

A long term dream to make TA accessible across the globe has resulted in the United States of America Transactional Analysis Association (USATAA) recording a live TA 101 at the 2019 Raleigh Conference. It is now online and free to everyone to listen to the modules in their own time.

Four distinguished trainers share their experience and wisdom in the training:

Vann Joines, Valerie Batts, Felipe Garcia and the late Graham Barnes.

There are videos, a learning guide and a Facebook discussion group to support the learning. The program does not include a TA 101 certificate – this will be awarded on the successful completion of the TA 101 written exam marked by an officially recognised 101 instructor or (P)TSTA
